I’ve been watching Gabriel leap into politics, and I can vouch for his character. ... Most importantly, he listens. For him, people’s voices are important simply because they deserve to be heard.
I ran in the aldermanic race because I wanted to see more opportunity and relief for Chicago families. I support Gabriel, because I believe that he shares that vision and will show up and represent the needs of the people in the 5th Ward. He is easy to talk to, and willing to listen.
Gabriel Piemonte is my pick ... A progressive candidate that has a history covering the Hyde Park/Lakefront area as a journalist. Of all the candidates, he has an understanding of legalities and policies that will impact the area. I've seen him visible for many events for the area as well.
we endorse gabriel. mister piemonte is our friend, but he's also a good friend of the community now facing dire developments by financiers, speculators, privatizers and real estate predators.
I have known Gabriel for years ... He is a deep thinker about social issues but he is also an effective organizer with realistic expectations. He may be, and I think he will be, our second Leon Despres.
Gabriel Piemonte has BEEN on point for more than 20 years. He didn't just get here. He's been standing up for justice in the Black community longer than you might know. Check his record with the Hyde Park Herald Newspaper and the Lakefront Outlook Newspaper. He's been calling out "the system" for decades.
I've known Gabriel for 30 years and I know he will be an important voice in this community and on the city council. He will work hard, bring much needed attention to South Shore, and he will improve the delivery of services to the constituents of Hyde Park. He is committed to fairness, transparency, and democratic decision making.
Mr. Piemonte's campaign-theme is this simple attention to the simple requests of our 5th Ward residents. ... Gabriel Piemonte, the candidate who gives evidence of best being able to perform this basic task in an enormously-more-efficient manner than the incumbent ... deserves the vote of each citizen of the 5th Ward.
